I decided to try out this Basic Norwegian Star Hat pattern by Cara Jo Miller using some big-box-store yarn I had in my stash and I actually am loving it. The name of the yarn is “I Love This Wool”. The colors are Umber, Biscuit and Grapevine.
This 100% wool yarn has a surprisingly rustic, earthy feel that appeals to me. I have enough for a couple more hats. Getting ready now to try out another pattern!
